this goofy novelette is gonna get its own release~~~ if a 1920s m/m romance between a Deaf actor and a professional swindler is up your alley, you can read it in the Tricked anthology now or get the solo version on april 16 that'll have some bonus content

content warnings:
- ableism
- alcohol consumption
- references to death of a parent/caregiver
Another sweet little read from Chace Verity. I liked the way this one was written, the way it played out over just a short time, with each day being a different chapter. I loved that Gil and Quill were childhood friends who reconnected after so many year apart! A very easy, entertaining story.

Content notes (from front matter):

🖤 ableism, discrimination
🖤 alcohol consumption
🖤mention of deceased parents/caregivers

I always know I can trust Chace Verity to write stories that will brighten my worst day and make me smile - and Lucky Charm is no different! I love Gil so much and he has such a funny voice that kept me smiling throughout. I love the element of second-chance this romance has and it’s just so soft and pleasant to read. The epilogue especially made my heart so

In terms of how much I enjoyed reading this, I found this to be a 4 star read. I had a blast reading this. In more realistic terms, this novella was about a 2.5 star read. It didn't exactly have the best writing ever, but I was smiling throughout the whole reading experience. So. Good times overall.

One of the things that made me love this novella was how cute it was. Almost everything that went down in it was ridiculously unrealistic, but it was a blast to read. I didn't care how chaotic the pl

Short, sweet and lovely. Chase Verity has such wonderfully strong voices for their protagonists, and Gil is no exception. I laughed out loud more than once and found him very sweet and charming.

I needed a bit of fluff today, and this was a great feel-good afternoon read that left me warm & fuzzy.

I was expecting a novel and got a short story (I think it was too short to be a novella, but is there something between a short story and a novella in length?). It was cute for what it was, but just not what I was looking for.

I'm a sucker for a good heist story--especially when the thieves are as charming as Gil and Quill. The best stuff:

-deaf rep!

Oh, I wish there was more, but that is my only complaint. Sweet, lovable heroes, glamorous backdrop, and rekindled love. And happy sighs about handsigning ‘home’ at the end. Just an utter delight all the way around!

Chace Verity (she/they) is publishing queer as heck stories with a strong romantic focus, although queer friendships and found families are important too. Chace prefers to write fantasy but dabbles in contemporary and historical fiction as well. An American citizen & Canadian permanent resident, Chace will probably never be able to call a gallon of milk a "four-liter." ...more
